abolished because it's always government gives us our problem in our race relations. look at how the drug laws now are enforced. they are very, very biased against minorities. i am against this drug war. if you really want to have fairness and civil liberties, you have to deal with the drug war. way out of proportion people who are arrested and put into prison are minority. way out of proportion on the use of drugs. when you look at problems the government is basically the problem. first it endorsed and legalized slavery. then it comes along with the jim crow laws that provided the integration. who was the biggest segregationist? it was our millingtary up until after world war ii. all i want to do is get rid of the government, get out of the way. when they create these jobs, racism, but you can't do this by invading somebody's private property and saying, we are going to tell you what you can do in your own houses, what you can do with your own liberty. you do not throw out all property rights in doing this. you throw out all the bad laws and protection that has been given. this whole ide

'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. what duo your country? be big debate nationwide because president obama is putting forth affluent americans owe the country more than they are giving. last night the president said this about business people. >> if you have got a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. the internet didn't get invented on its own. government research created the internet. so then all the companies could make money off the internet. >> bill: apparently the president believes that the federal government should take more in taxes from wealthy americans and business owners because the feds make individual success possible. that of course, is some outrage. here is my take. no man is an island. everybody needs help to develop their potential, that's true. however, individual achievement is just that. barack obama did not help me develop the factor. no federal agency helped me go to college. i paid my own way. i painted houses. federal government, nothing to do with it didn't give me the paint. didn't give me the brush. didn't help me up the ladder. yes,

of the achievers. and that's the truth and that's the memo. now for the top story tonight, reaction. joining us from chicago dr. austin goals bi. he currently teaches at the university university chicago. where am i going wrong, professor. >> it's good to see you again, bill. i think you went wrong perhaps in two places. the first is if you look at how much of their income, high income people are paying in taxes. it's not higher, it's actually dramatically lower. if you look at the 400 highest income people in the country, the amount of their income they are paying in taxes is about half of what it was 15 years ago. so, it wasn't class warfare when george bush cut these taxes and nor would it be class warfare to have those rates go back to what they were under clinton. >> bill: yeah, but there are a lot of other taxes that weren't in play as you know under bill clinton. id ask my brain room staff to put together a list of new taxes that president obama has either passed or wants to pass. they are staggering. they are taxes that people don't know about. so, yes, you are right on othe income tax

committee, my colleague, the gentleman from new jersey, my friend, mr. andrews, urged us to, and i quote, dispassionately examine the facts, end of quote. i agree with just that sentiment and would like to take a moment to do just that. earlier this year, the centers for medicare and medicaid, c.m.s., reported that health insurance premiums are expected to rise by over 44% over the next nine years as a result of obamacare and since obamacare was signed into law, there's been a steady decline in the number of americans on private health insurance. a report from the mckinsey group found that more than 50% of employers had a high awareness of the law and they said that they would stop offering health insurance, confirming what republicans have been saying nor three years -- for three years, and that is that obamacare is designed to force employers to drop coverage in an attempt to get americans to enter the new health care exchanges. madam speaker, i ask unanimous consent to include the "wall street journal" article on this report. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mr. sessions: a

an administration which gets us into a war, fights a war, it may be successful, but the american people, any people will turn against it. 1920, wilson with the republicans, went into congress in '46. lyndon johnson not being able to succeed himself. and the bushes. it those a very hell of a good war leader, winston churchill. so there's a problem with that. but more than that, add one more gigantic thing it to, it's the economy, stupid, and the economy is a miss. more strikes than ever in american history. >> host: in 1920? >> guest: 1919. 1920. the boston police strike with calvin coolidge. the seattle general strike. you think the world is about ready to blow up after the war. and the unemployment rate, the inflation rate, are terrific. we would easily be satisfied with what's going on now rather than have that. >> host: in 1919-1920, was it a given or general thought that whoever won the republican primary would win the presidency? >> guest: yes, i think so. i mean, you have to be dreaming to think as the year went on that democrats could pull it off, and there is this massive, massive landslide
